WAVE’s 11th Annual River Sweep was a huge success!
On Saturday June 11, 2022, WAVE Staff and Volunteers, including Newport Aquarium Staff, and a few Cincinnati Bengals, spent a few hours to clean up the Ohio River bank. With 77 people working hard to make a difference more than 35 huge bags of trash and many heavy and large items were removed from the Ohio Riverbank. Thanks to all those who volunteered their time and energy!
While WAVE’s River Sweep 2022 is over, you can still make a difference. ORSANCO’s Ohio River Sweep used to be a one day event, Ohio River Sweep has now changed to a full season. The goal is to support clean up events from March through October to remove the greatest amount of litter possible, thus having a larger collective impact than a one day event could previously offer. Participants choose the date and location of their cleanup and the Ohio River Sweep provides support and supplies to hold the event. Find an event to join or organize your own River Sweep!
